Notes

Reinforcements on the way: We’ve known for a few days that Evan Longoria and Brandon Belt are due back sometime this week, likely when they’re eligible to come off the Injured List on Thursday. Still, confirmation of good injury news is always nice.

Thursday TBD: In keeping with their theme of the year, the Giants still don’t seem to know who will start the series finale.

Righties are terrifying: If you’re the type to buy into trends, you maybe shouldn’t watch tonight’s game, or tomorrow’s.


Enjoy the baseball, folks.
